Who is Keyshia Ka’oir? 8 Things We Know About Gucci Mane's Wife

There’s nothing that shows love more than a 60-carat diamond — especially if you’re Gucci Mane's wife, that is. The rapper gifted his wife Keyshia Ka’Oiron a humongous diamond ring for Valentine’s Day, and then flaunted the huge rock on social media. Gucci said he upgraded Keyshia’s wedding ring to a 60 Ct. “flawless oval” rock, and said he went all out “for all the Valentines I missed.”

After his wife gifted him a 35-carat pinky ring worth over $1 million, Gucci Mane had to do something even more over-the-top for his beloved bride on Valentine’s Day. The 39-year-old rapper showed off the new, insanely large 60-carat ring he bought for his wife, 34, as an upgrade to her engagement ring in a video on Instagram.

“To my beautiful wife @KeyshiaKaoir Davis. For all the Valentines I missed I wanted to upgrade your wedding ring to this 60ct flawless oval ROCK,” Mane wrote, adding his signature tagline “#Brrr.”

Ka’oir’s new rock beats out Beyoncé’s $5 million, 18-carat sparkler, Mariah Carey’s 35-carat emerald-cut diamond from her billionaire ex-fiancé James Packer and even Elizabeth Taylor’s famous $8.8 million, 33-carat Krupp diamond. The “upgrade” was from the 25-carat engagement ring Mane proposed with. Oh to be so stinking rich.

Meanwhile, Sheena Evans claims she’s on welfare while trying to get a raise in child support from the rapper for their child. Currently, Sheena collects $2,000 per month for her 11-year-old son with Gucci, Keitheon. Evans said Gucci spends tons of cash on watches and jewelry, and a million-dollar wedding. Gucci has denied his baby mama needs a raise in child support and has questioned the $20,000 per month she is seeking — chump change for the value of that 6-carat rock.

So who is Gucci Mane’s wife Keyshia Ka’oir? Here are 8 things we know about her.

5. Gucci proposed during a basketball game.

Gucci proposed to Ka’oir on Nov. 22, 2016 in the middle of an Atlanta Hawks basketball game. He got on one knee and presented her with a 25 carat diamond, and it was all captured on the arena’s “Kiss Cam.”

6. She has her own cosmetic line. 

Ka’oir is the CEO and the creative force behind her own brand of cosmetics, KA’OIR Cosmetics. One night in 2009 she wanted to wear blue lipstick to match her shoes and her dress, and couldn’t find one from any of the major cosmetics companies.

“My friends were all like, you can’t wear blue lipstick because people will make fun of you. I ignored them because I’m always a unique person and I want to be over the edge," according to an excerpt from Gucci’s autobiography. 

She mixed her blue eye shadow with some lip gloss to create a highly pigmented sky blue lipstick, wore it out, and her look ended up all over the blogs the next day.

“No one knew my name, no one knew who I was, but everyone wanted to be the girl with the mohawk and the blue lipstick,” she said. She started her company in 2010 and her line embraces everything about who Ka’oir is — bright, bold and vibrant colors and energy. Ka’oir developed a specific lipstick in honor of the fight against breast cancer with a percentage of the proceeds being donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Affiliate.
